Somo wooka ago tho Register of
Wheoling, W. Va., was informed that
thoro was a haunted mill near Valley
Fnrnaco, Harbour county, and that
thoro wero many strango sights and
Bounds to bo heard thcro. Later n local
correspondent near Valley Furnaco
sent in a letter telling of theso tilings.
They wero generally discredited, but
wero deemed worthy of investigation,
the belief being that at least tho sourco
of tho strango occurronco could bo located.
Accordingly, a member of tho
stafT was sent out this week to make a
thorough investigation. Tho
selected to mako tho trip is tho
samo man who investigated tho
McUomas haunted honso in
Belmont county, Ohio, nearly 15 years
'ago, and found the reason why n piano
(moved about tho room without being
touched by human hands, and n
hopped from ono placo to an.
lother on tho stove Theso and many
(other curious things wcro found to bo
done by a daughter of tho McComas
family who had a peculiar occult powor
oer inanimate objects, which sho could
not explain and which sho did not discover
till sho was n woman grown. Tho
reporter returned to-day and has pro-pared
tho following for his paper:
THE DEVIL Oil SOMEONE EqUALLV AS
"I liavo just returned from tho now
famous "hannted mill" located near
Valley Furnace, Barbour county, and
which has been mentioned in tho Register
boforo. I arrived at Valley Furnace
in the morning and spent tho day
asking questions of the people thcro
concerning tho strango thiugs which
havo been going on thcro. I found
that a number of reputable pooplo had
been witnesses of tho unexplaiuablo
things reported, and that they wero
fully improssed with tho idea that tho
mill is possessed of tho devil or
equally capable of making troublo
and causing alarm. Tho building is
comparatively now, being only about
10 years old, and all that time has been
in operation. It is now running, tho
water being low, compelling the owner
to keep it going night and day to grind
tho grists ottered. Thcio has never
been a murder or othor tragedy, either
in the mill or anywhoro about it, bo far
as any of tho old residents know.
Richard Newman, the present owner
of tho mill, bought it nearly a year ago
from B. F. McDonald, who operated
it for 10 years before. McDonald says
that thoro was never anything to disturb
his pcaco whilo ho had tho mill,
and that ho is as much at a loss to account
for tho strango disturbances as
nnyono can bo. Newman declares ho
knows nothing about them, and to
tiack up his assertion says tho value of
tho plant has decrcasod one-fourth
within tho past six weeks, since tho
disturbances began. I'coplo cannot be
induced to pass tho place after night
and many grists havo been carried past
tho mill to anothor 10 miles down tho
road rather than stop at tho haunted
mill. McDonald was licensed of knowing
tho cauho of tho strango capers and
of trying to buy tho mill back at a reduction,
but Nowman tested this by
offering to soil at half what it cost,
wliicli oiler .McDonald reinsou to no.
VISITED THE JtlLti THREE N10IITB.
"Thcro havo been many stories iold
of what has been soon, but I will
myself to tho things which actually
took placo whilo I was there. The
Dovil has been mounted on whoels for
10 days and his oarriago has beou rolling
through tho mill during that time.
I visited tho mill three nights in
accompanied by James W.
Polling, a well-known citizen, who is
reputed to bo honest, not only in Valley
Furnace, but all over tho State.
Ho was tho only man in tho neighborhood
who felt no fear and was willing
to go with mo. Tho first night some
unseen hand with ponderous strength
dexterity, amazing in its accuracy,
hurled rocks, old iron, glass, oto., pro-
misciously through tho mill. A largo
iron spindle, weigning 300 pounds, was
pitched sovcral times onto tho floor. A
largo crowbar waltzed acrosi tho floor
of tho grinding room, bottled quietly
against tho wall as though placed thero
by human hands. After resting thoro
forafow minutes it again resumed Jts
pcrogrinatious and rested whero it
(started at first.
HOCKS FALL ALL AIIOITT IHfiM.
"A slow, low, heavy step was heard
on tho floor above, and a numbor of
dry, smooth stones, varying in weight
from three ounces to (ho pounds, drop-
ltxl through tho ceiling without leav
ing auy holo. Theso showors of stones
wero not violent. Tho rocks dropped
ono or two at a timo, and although thoy
fell all about us none of them hit
either or struck any part of tho machinery,
Hoveral old bolts which Mr.
Newman said had been stored on tho
top floor fell into tho
Old iron weights, pieces of hammers,
brokvu picks used for dressing tho mill
stones, and other pieces of iron which
would naturally bo found about a mill,
tnmhlod to tho floor as though thrown
from one side with a rolling motion.
These, aftor lying stil for a time, would
tamblo about the floor as if possessed.
An old stouodrcssor's pick, handle and
all, fell to tho floor and I picked it up.
On it was tho namo of James Koyscr.
I asked if thoro was nuoh a person
about and was told that ho lhod in
town. ' Tho next day I shoncd tho pick
io Mr. Koysor, nnd ho identified it na
ono ho had lost nt tlio English mill, BO
miles nwny in Tucker county, yenrs
hko, before tho mill hero wns Ifiiilt. Uo
declares ho had never seen it boforo
since it was lost. Later, whilo wo wcro
UamlinKWHUluK for something to turn
1 uj), a wedgo used to lift; tho millstones
hopped from tho, llqori to tho scales,
caUsing them to vibrato as' though a
man wero jumping up nnd down upon
demonstrations isthe mmafisv
"Mr. Nowman says that thcro aro
sometimes demonstrations of n similar
character in daytimo; though thoy aro
not usually so violent. Wo repeatedly
aconsed Nowman of being responsible
for theso strango things, but ho as
frequently denied it jn the most vigorous
tonus, and, to mako tho proof
positive,- he went away from tho mill
and left us alone there. Tho freaks
wore as pronounced as -before. Tho
next night, Newman pitched tho toll
dish into a barrel and turned tho barrel
over it. Tho toll dish had been show
ing signs of uneasiness and this was
done to test it. Newman, after throw
ing tho toll'dish into the barrel, started
down to tho next floor below, but be-
foro ho had gotten half way the barrel
turned over, and tho dish flew out after
him, bouncing along tho floor and
striking him lightly in tho back as he
reached tho foot of tho stairs.
DisArrKAnnu when sot watched.
"On tho last night I was thero tho
stones wcro droppiug from the coaling
as usual. One thing which I havo not
mentioned was that theso stones and
things would stay on the floor as long as
ono watchod thomj but, turn your bond,
and thoy disappeared. When you
would turn your head to look when ono
fell, thoso which you had been watching
would disappear. This night wo
picked np and marked several of tho
stones. Half an hour later theso samo
stones wcro dropping from the ceiling
of tho garret. Several of them had
been marked again on tho opposite
sides with marks similar to thoso wo
had first put npon them. Whilo wo
wero on tho first floor discussing the
strange manifestations, I remarked, as
the stones wero" dropping: The stones
seem to fall from about the height of a
man's hand when hanging by his side,'
suiting tho action to tho words and letting
a stono drop from that position.
Instantly another stono dropped upon
tho floor over our heads. The noises
mado by tho stono I dropped and tho
one dropped abovo wero almost identi
cal. I then said, 'Wo can drop them
from a greater height thau that,' dropping
ono from abovo my head. Instantly
thcro camo a thump on the
floor abovo. Wo wont up and found
tho two stones which I had dropped on
tho floor below, thoy having been
NO LIOHT ON THE MTSTEIIY.
"Tho demonstrations wero kept up
almost uninterruptedly during tho
thrco nights I was thcro, and thero was
no effort spared to find tho causo of
them. Nothing was discovered, however,
which wonld throw tho slightest
light upon tho mystery. Thero is no
possibility of tho sounds and movements
of tho objects being produced
by mochanical means, for I looked into
every nook and corner of tho mill, oven
going to the cellar and out about tho
covered wator wheel. Bu t every part
of the building is affected, for oven in
the cellar an old wooded pinion which
had not been in use for several years
started to turn one day last week and

his assistant could not stop it or
throw it from tho upright position it
"I do not believo in spirits, separate
and distinct from tho body, but thero is
strong ovidonco in favor of the spirit

in this mill in tlio turco nignts ana
days I spent thero."

"Wheroforo they aro no more twain,

hath joinod together let no mau put

greatost evil which threatons tho civilized
world to-day. Like a canker it
lies at tho root of our most sacred institutions,
homo. Its slow, insiduoiis
poison has blunted our moral perception
until men and women seem to havo
no sonso of shame. A man tiros of a
woman ho has married; is attracted by
tho youth and boauty of ono who was
scarcely moro than a child whon ho
took upon himself the vows of wodlook,
"vows as falso as divers oaths." It 1j
true, his wifo is a good wom'iin; tho

flaunts into court, armed with somo '

tho derision of a cruel world over roady i
to mock tho unfortunate. Hor ploa, so

The difference between this woman
and those of acknowledged dlsolnto lifo

I made a visit 011 the ktli mid 17th
inst. to the Convent Li G.muiIu Chartreuse,
which lies off in the mountains
south .f Ciuiiibery and 1101 th of Grenoble.
I staid all night in tho convent and
nttemVd midnight mass. My bedroom
(No. 13) was about half as big as that
littlo bedroom yon and I occupied at
Jsi during our Italian trip, but more
plainly furnished. As I couldn't sleep
very well, I got up nnd went to mass nt
a quarter to 11, staid thero nearly two
hours nnd then went to bed at 2 n. in.
At a few minutes before 11 tho mouke
(peres. not freres) camo filing in from
their cells, each enrrying n littlo lantern.
Not one of them uttered a word foi
some time; then one of them made n
Blight noiso ns though with his knuckles
on a desk, and tho Latin chant of about
four notes began and continued with
blight Interruptions for an hour nnd
Then each relighted his
littlo lantern, put out tho light held iu a
littlo reflector on tho breast to light up
the book beforo him, and as silently ns
they camo they went off to their cells.
There uro -10 peres or pretres thero nnd
4 1 frerea. Tho ixres aro tho moro advanced,
livo in their cells from week's
end to week's end, except for their
church services nt midnight mid one
meal together on Sundays nnd church
holidays. These peres never speak to
each other nor to any ono whatever ox
cept when out 011 n promenade, which
they tako onco a week. Tho freres do
tho business of tho convent and aro less
restricted, though they never go outside
of tho 12 aero walled iuclosuru without
permission. No woman is over allowed
to go iusido of that walled iuclosure except
by written permission from the
popo, nnd Queen Victoria was tho lost
one having that permission.
Jiy trip to tnis convent, tiirough a
beautiful mountainous country, and the
last nine kilometers nt tho side of a
mountain torrent, delighted ino greatly,
Thero wns nothing but 11 mule path to
this convent until 1831, nnd their idea of
living "dans uno solitudo nbsolue" was
well carried out for nearly 800 years. It
is a strange idea pf God and of tho way
to get to heaven that you should abandon
the world nnd all its trials and duties so
that you may pleaso him and gain 11 happy
hereafter. I used to call this baud-box
virtuo, but now I withdraw condemnation
till I know their individual
griefs and mental makeup.
It is at least better than suicide, for
timo is almost always curative, nnd
reflection and Btudy bring peace and
mental equanimity. I will add Unit oil

men, charging 1110 moderately and

In Frnure, and I believo in European
countries, it is a most ominous sign for a
rider, nnd eiecially a soldier, to want
a horso with four whito feet. Tho famous
general. Lasalle, who was very au.
perstitious upon this point, never
mounted such n horso. The day
of his death, after feoveralomiuonsnvents
which had hapiieiied to him that day,
such as n broken mirror, a broken iio,
tho picture of his wifo broken nt the
very moment when ho went to look nt it
for tho last time, he mounted a horso
not his own without glancing nt tho
feet. Tho horso had tho unlucky signs.
Mounted upon this horse, he was struck
by 11 shot fired at n moment when fighting
had ceased by 11 Croat among tho
prisoners just taken at thubattleof Wag-ram.
On the other hand, tho four white
feet are n mark nnd token of consideration
with tho orientals, who do not fail
to mention the fact in tho edigrees of
their horses. 1 Artiste.
